Jose Gonzalez’s Melbourne Zoo Twilight’s Show Sells Out

We are thrilled to announce that José González’s Melbourne Zoo Twilights show has officially Sold Out. In one of the fastest selling years for the series, tickets for The Waifs, Birds Of Tokyo and The John Butler Trio second show are all selling fast.

 

Sweden’s José González first charmed his way into the earshot of the world thanks to the elegant, classically finger-picked folk pop of his 2005 album, Veneer, which has since sold over a staggering 430, 000 copies in UK alone. Two years later came In Our Nature, a further exploration of José’s influences (Argentinian Folklore, the ’60s US folk tradition and the British pastoral folk-pop style of the same era), on which he resisted the temptation to beef up his alluringly introvert aesthetic.

A deep, artful thinker whose singular approach to song writing and sonics sets him worlds apart, José González is in a class by himself. He has a voice. He has a sound. He has a point of view.It may be seven years since he released a solo record, but he has been anything but idle in that time., José is again stepping center stage solo, with Vestiges & Claws.

 

Watch him play live here for NPR’s Tiny Desk series earlier this year.

 

The 2016 program once again serves up a vast array of acts to satisfy every musical palate. Featuring…..

 

Far From Folsom Featuring Tex Perkins and The Tennessee Four with Rachael Tidd with special guest Vic Simms, The Waifs with special guest Ruby Boots, José González with special guests Tiny Ruins, John Butler Trio with special guests Tinpan Orange, Josh Pyke with special guests Winterbourne, Birds Of Tokyo with special guests Fractures, Jebediah with special guest Glenn Richards (of Augie March), Mark Seymour & The Undertow with special guest Ben Salter, San Cisco + Last Dinosaurs, Kasey Chambers with special guest Karise Eden, two sets made up of stories and songs from Colin Hay, C.W. Stoneking with special guest Marlon Williams, Björn Again and Belinda Carlisle with special guests Pseudo Echo.

 

Tickets to all shows include full access to the Zoo before the show begins: arrive early and wander among the many exhibits before you settle in for a night of great music.
